Big price change on this 2BR/2BA in the Michigan Avenue Tower II, a terrific building built in 2008 that still has its contemporary feel. Floor to ceiling windows in all of the rooms make this a wonderfully bright space. Way up on the 19th floor, this condo clears all of the close-by neighboring buildings so that you have sweeping views to the North and West, with a slice of the Lake from the balcony off the living room. The condo has just been completely repainted and the new carpeting just been installed. It's a corner unit with the unique split bedroom layout so that there can be plenty of privacy for office/study versus sleeping space or a great roommate situation. The second bedroom has sliding glass doors opening to a Juliette balcony which gives the feeling of sleeping on a mountaintop. The kitchen opens to the living room, separated only by the granite topped island with bar stools that the seller will leave for impromptu meals. There is also a separate area for a dining table looking out through 1 huge window to the balcony and the city beyond. The main entertaining spaces have hardwood floors and the bedrooms will have that new carpeting. The very cool front-loading red washer and dryer are recent upgrades. The ensuite bathroom has a two sink vanity and a wide tiled shower stall. The hall bath has a shower/tub combination. Both toilets have bidet seats which will remain in the unit. This hot summer has been perfect for relaxing in the outdoor pool. There is also a party room, an exercise room, 24 hour door staff, a great engineering team and on-site dry cleaners. The South Loop has exploded in the past several years as a foodie destination with restaurants of all kinds opening up and down the streets. The very popular Waffle House is in the building as well as the corner Go Grocer for convenient shopping. It's only a couple of blocks to the Trader Joes, Jewel and Mariano's. Boutique shops line the avenues. It's easy to get everywhere via buses out front or the trains that stop at Roosevelt, just two blocks north. Biking is also popular with easy access to the Lakefront paths, beaches, museums and green spaces. It's an easy walk or roll to Soldier Field and Northerly Island or to the marinas. The Loop is a refreshing walk north along Grant Park. Walk Score rates the location as a paradise for walking, public transportation and biking. There is a parking space available for $25,000, and the sellers are willing to leave the Crate and Barrel sofa and chair as well as the two platform beds, a side table and the breakfast barstools for the buyer who wants them. It's easy to get everywhere from here; yet it's a terrific place where you can luxuriate without leaving home.
